Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., was among the many first to criticize the rapper.
“Snoop shouldn’t have done that,” Rubio informed TMZ. “We’ve had presidents assassinated before in this country, so anything like that is really something we should be very careful about.”
“I think people can disagree on policy,” Rubio added, “but we’ve got to be careful with that kind of thing, because the wrong person sees that and gets the wrong idea, you can have a real problem.”
Michael Cohen, Trump’s private lawyer, informed TMZ Snoop ought to apologize.
“It’s totally disgraceful. Snoop owes the president an apology,” Cohen mentioned. “There’s absolutely nothing funny about an assassination attempt on a president, and I’m really shocked at him, because I thought he was better than that.”
Snoop, for his half, informed Billboard that he wasn’t trying to provoke a response with the video.
He simply put it out as a result of there aren’t sufficient music movies encouraging impressionable younger individuals to aim to assassinate their president, apparently.
“I just put it out because I feel like it’s something that’s missing. Any time I drop something, I’m trying to fill in a void,” he mentioned. “I feel like it’s a lot of people making cool records, having fun, partying, but nobody’s dealing with the real issue with this f***ing clown as president.”
